Evenings Always Go Quickly

By the time we return from our walk around the lake and..........start the grill, catch up on our day.........
knit a little and ride a horse on a game..............
work on some knitting's time for bed!

Huge Wind

Right in the middle of a photo op with a couple of 12" girls! Got my attention!

Cloth Book Panels

During the past three years, I have spent a small fortune on these panels, batting, and taggies but are they ever cute!! The panels are $9.95 and well worth it. I fell in love with the Halloween book that I mentioned on an earlier post. It was so cute and so above age 2 that I decided to keep it. The jokes were appropriate for ages four and up and I'm sure second graders would hoard it if it were in their classroom library.

Last night Jeff encouraged me to go get another Halloween panel. He knows how our young grands enjoy books, sleep with books, and don't get dents in their skin with the padded cloth books.

Now the FUN!! This morning at Jo Ann's, I found out that due to the typo on page four, this Halloween book is now .37!!!! I had noticed the error and knew that second graders would laugh themselves silly about a bat trying to wear a clock, instead of a cloak! The misprint didn't bother me and I'm certain it won't bother a single young reader! I bought three, one for each grand!!


There were numerous blossoms and a handful of starts; many turned yellow and fell off the vine. These two look GREAT!

John Jeffrey's Calendar

I mailed it today, along with business cards, "bird seed" (nerds candy), and other tea party goodies.

Fun Walks

And it's still summer, in the 90s.

Still Dodging Bees

They LOVE our garden, especially the Cosmos. We love our garden too! The bees buzzed around little Tulah Kish but she didn't care.

Wasp Is Winning

It was flying around, then trapped under a cloth, then under two cloths....................
and hammered with John Jeffrey's plastic block....................
and hammered some more...............
and when I peeked under the cloths, the stupid thing was still alive and wanting to fly around the living room again! Story ends with Jeff coming home from work, lifting the cloths with two hands, my opening of the front door, and tossing the entire mess onto the front porch. Wasp was happily wandering around the porch when I left my watch.

Canning Peaches On Nelson Street

Kitchen is rather small. While he got things ready, she knit. Then both pairs of hands were busy for a steady thirty minutes. Jars are filled and boiling for 40 minutes so we can go relax. This is such fun!
